Last night, I complained that the troop surge in DC was hard to keep up with as the number of troops was increased to 21,000 with a possibility of 26,000. Now it has increased again, this time to 26,000 with a possibility of 30,000 troops.

If I were a Republican Legislator or politician, I'd stay the hell away from DC on inauguration day.

26,000 troops and the cream of the Republican party concentrated in one place?

Let's say that my paranoia woke up and waved a sign saying MASS ARRESTS FOR SEDITION

    "26,000 troops and the cream of the Republican party concentrated in one place?"
    Cream is right, a fetid pool of diseased spooge, one and all.

As a lifelong Republican, I say take ma'am all.
Yeah we will lose some good ones, but how else are you going to flush the toilet.
If you are "concerned" for their welfare, … My mind just boggles at that.

What if they were deployed by Trump?
What would that mean?

I don't think Trump is in charge any more. Story after story are talking about how "Vice President Pence was briefed" and "Vice President Pence talks to troops" and "26,000 troops authorized by Army Chief" etc.

Trump is being held under virtual house arrest. I think this has to do with it:

Those are more troops than in Afghanistan where they face actual insurgents and trying to pacify a whole country, not just a city. The letter from the Joint Chiefs was just so much BS, and those numbers include the 174th Attack Wing (Predator drones???), and the 177th Fighter Wing (F-16 Air to Air defense… da f***). And the majority of ground troops from new, seen few if any deployment, and from heavily Democratic controlled states like NY and NJ.

This does not look like 4D Chess, this looks like some (more) shady stuff is going to go down that is so bad they are preparing for the worst up to and including Blue on Blue.

And China offers 250,000 troops to insure a “smooth transition “???

Is there a list available of all units in DC?

Divemedic · January 15, 2021 at 9:02 pm

Not one coherent one, no. I tried to put one together, and when there were "only" about 7,000 troops from a handful of states, it was easier to do by going to the state NG PIO pages. That is no longer possible because 1) too many states, and 2) many units are no longer posting that information for "security reasons."

    Just got a decent one from the Intrepid Reporter himself who says he got some of it from you, so thanks to you both. Weird times, my grandkids deserve better.

Seems like a whirlpool developing in the swamp. De-facto martial law will develop a martial experience similar to the mob. It won't take much to start a rush for the door and we don't know who will be swept up in the tangle of plastic cuffs and remember they have already been issued a deadly force order.

Here is the one I originally did, but that was 16,000 troops ago when there were only 10,000 of them.
